    An old plus-only feature was to have your own forum, appoint moderators, invite certain users, etc.

    Makes for better communities

    I think this is definitely something to build up to right now.

    Agreed. If people have a way of running their own forums, various groups will set up within Nexopia...

    Not really sure how this works from a technical standpoint. @SadikB is this doable with Xenforo?

    Yeah, groups are definitely doable. But from an activity point of view I don't think we are there yet. I will revisit this suggestion once we have more people.

    I miss having user forums. And private used forums. There were ten of us that had a really great one!

    I took over a Photoshop forum but something went wrong so I started a new one with my plus. A friend had a beauty addicts forum where I learned 90% of what I know about makeup. We also had a private forum of like-minded (unfiltered, somewhat crass, and forward-thinking) girls that was a lot of fun. Still friends with most of them.

    That sounds awesome! I had a forum with a dozen or so users who didn't sleep at night, I also had my own Rocky Horror forum because with plus the opportunities were endless :D
    I asked admin for a beauty forum recently but no one has expressed much interest in it yet.

    Against my better judgement, I'd join. Lord, help my wallet. My time on that them squeezed about 5,000 out of my bank account and into the pockets of MAC.

    Maybe we could tweak the Photography forum into "Art and Photography" to cover analog and digital art as well as various types of photography? A larger topic might get more people interested.

    If you want private private forums, I can do that... but as of now not too many people requesting that. And right now there isn't a mechanism for you to create your own forums.

    @lellojello if your friends also get back on Nex, I may be tempted to create a mechanism whereby you could create your own private forums!

    I would like my own private forum, In which I could talk freely to myself where judgement and other punishments do not deem that as strange or indifferent. In which the world could understand the great Cib3rNaut as a person of not numbers and capital and uncapitalized letters themselves, more of a combination of both that represent the word itself. Where all people of any color be it their favorite or artificially created ones could blend together to create amazing productions of conversation. And no Man, Women or Child is left behind.
